2005 Kawasaki Ninja EX250 Bought it as is Guy who had it fell off and all plastics broke Bike was sitting for 4 years Bike cranks over and And starts If you give it full throttle and hold it at full...

It sounds like you have seriously over-filled the oil. This is not a good idea and can cause seals to blow out, blow by at the piston rings and in severe cases, possibly bent connecting rods. Drain the oil off and fill to spec. Sometimes they give the oil capacity on the side of the engine, in ml. measurement. For example a bike I have says: 1600ml If you don't know the conversion into quarts and can't find it anywhere on the internet, you can buy a cheap measuring container that has a metric reading on it.
I hope this helps you out, Good luck!

2005 crf250R smoking, ticking and blowing oil out of the exhaust

You will see the problem when you take the head off. No compression is either valves, rings or piston.

I have a hose with a filter attached to it on the right side of the bike and every time i start the bike oil flows out of it?

check the oil level and make sure its not over full. the hose with the mini filter is a crankcase breather, if there is too much oil, it could cause oil to flow out the breather. It is possible that the rings are worn or broken causing blow by or extra crank case pressure. The hard shifting is usually caused by a dragging clutch or the clutch being out of adjustment.

Gio 250cc dirt bike,blows blue smoke when started then still blows even more when riding

Oil ring snapped or seized. At least it won't seize up as there's plenty of oil there!

I am having an oil leak and don't know how to go about fixing it. It starts as soon as I start riding the bike. It is coming from the left side of the bike and sprays on my pants on my left leg

Well, what kind of oil does it seems like, a thin oil or thick oil?
Have you clen the bike and see where it might come from. By description, can not be pinpoint source location, have you check your fork, oil cooler connections, or even your LH engine to trace it's source?
Because if you are riding and oil splashes onto your pant legs can be caused by air pressure blowing a leak onto your legs. Hunt the source fisrt then wil try to fix it.

White smoke blowing out the exhaust and oil consumtion on r.cyl.

Its most likely your rings. They get worn and start letting oil into the combustion chamber. They aren't extremely hard to replace.

Oil blowing out of trans breather tube

hi 81 yamaha i am concerned about the fuel smell coming out with the oil. could be the carbs flooding filling your crankcase with fuel? if not it sounds like you have blow by which would cause your crank case to be slightly pressured. this is caused by worn piston rings. do not plug your crank vent. if you leave your vent open install small filter to stop dirt from entering jim
